Do I need an adapter to plug my American GPS into my Irish rental car?

My brothers and I are going to Ireland for a week-long trip beginning Sunday. We'll be driving around the countryside in Clare, Galway and Kerry, and I'm bringing my car GPS along to help us navigate.

3 Weeks in Europe

Let's say you're spending three weeks in Europe late this summer. The first week is in Denmark, the third is in Ireland. Where would you spend the second? You'd like to go somewhere off the beaten path (in other words not Paris, London, or Amsterdam), but don't want to spend too much time in transit. You'd rather go somewhere rural than urban, you have a limited budget, and you'd prefer culture to castles and cathedrals. Any suggestions?
